The Way Back finds distribution with Newmarket


In advance of its Telluride premiere, Peter Weir’s epic trek The Way Back has already found a distributor. Deadline says the acquisition is a synergistic deal for Newmarket since Newmarket’s parent company Exclusive Media Group provided financing for the film’s production.

Newmarket previously handled US distribution for Whale Rider, Monster, The Passion of the Christ, Downfall, and The Prestige, so they have experience shepherding provocative material with sophisticated finesse.
